The Schillings law firm also claims that the Mail on Sunday deliberately chose to “omit or suppress” important sections of the correspondence in an effort to hide the true meaning of Meghan’s words and that it didn't warn Meghan the letter was going to be published.
Meghan “intended the detailed contents of the letter to be private, and certainly did not expect them to be published to the world at large by a national newspaper, and without any warning,” states the Schillings submission, according to the Press Association. “The letter was obviously private correspondence written by the claimant to her father.”
Over the weekend, a preview clip of a documentary about Harry and Meghan's recent trip to Africa showed an emotional Meghan close to tears as journalist Tom Bradby asks whether she is ok.
"Look, any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging," Meghan said. "And then when you have a newborn – you know?"
She pauses, before adding: "And especially as a woman, it’s really — it’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed, it’s …" but, clearly overcome with emotion, she cannot finish her sentence.
She then says: "Yeah, and also I thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m okay. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."
He then asks her: "And the answer is, it would be fair to say, not really okay? As in, it’s really been a struggle?"
"Yes," she replies.
